Robot Faces – level 2
A Russian company, Promobot, makes robots which look like real people. Its robots already work in 40 countries in the world.
The company opened a new department which uses 3D modeling. The company has a laboratory where it makes artificial skin, eyes, and teeth. They look so real that many people believe it is art. The business with these robots is growing fast, and Promobot wants to start mass production this year. The technology is special because it is a mix of sculpturing with computer skills.
At the moment, Promobot makes only a head, but the company wants to make the whole body in the future.
Difficult words: artificial (something that looks natural but people made it), mass production (when a company makes many similar things for many people), sculpturing (a type of art when somebody makes sculptures).
You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
